this method is of course fast and dirty, but it might not work for everyone out there.
the best aproach is to write a perl script that runs queries on a database, gets path to a user's mailbox on the server, uses File::Find to include only files in Maildir/cur and Maildir/new as well as :subfolders:/cur and :subfolders:/new with the exception of trash folders. that should give a much clearer picture. in addition it can scale better.
I have something similar, but it's not very generic, so I don't know if anyone would be interested. I've added a few fields to the vpopmail table to record when they first hit quota so I can get a report (quick php page) of who's over and for how long.
To get usage, I'm just hitting the user's homedir with du, can you comment a bit on why I would need to count only the mail? There shouldn't really be anything of note in the user's directory besides the mail...
It is quite interesting to see how much the "real" usage (provided by du) can differ from the maildirsize info.
